GONE GIRL Writer, Director, And Producer Sued By Screenwriter | Writer’s Relief

It’s not every day that we bibliophiles turn to TMZ for news. But then Writer’s Relief learned that this was happening:

“Reese Witherspoon got a lot of accolades for producing Gone Girl, and now she’s got a lawsuit.

Leslie Weller claims she wrote a screenplay called Out of the Blue back in 2005. She sent a copy to a script consultant and claims that set the wheels in motion for someone to jack her work. She says the book Gone Girl which came out in 2012 is a rip off of her screenplay.”
